Medicine never stops changing and improving, meaning education and training must keep pace. Our wide-ranging projects tackle any subject which may impact on education now and in the future.

Medical licensing assessment

We’re introducing the Medical Licensing Assessment (MLA) which will test the core knowledge, skills and behaviours needed to practise safely in the UK. From 2023, international medical students will sit the MLA instead of PLAB. And UK medical students graduating in the academic year 2023-24 will need to pass the MLA.
